The criminal, ultra-extremist Haredi jews squatting at the colony of “Betar Illit” (בֵּיתָר עִלִּית), established on the hilltops of the lands of the Palestinian villages of Husan, Nahalin and Wadi Fukin near Bethlehem and west of the colony of (גוש עציון) “Gush Etzion”, 10 kilometres south of occupied Jerusalem, cut the ears of a Palestinian worker, Khaled Hussein Hamamrah, and smashed his head with a sharp object as a celebration of the end of 2011. The assault took place at noon on Friday Dec. 30 2011 as revenge against the Hamamrah family, which owns the agricultural land close to the colony and refuses to sell it to the criminal squatters.
The Hamamreh family has already lost over two thousand dunums (1 dunum = 2500 square meters or 0,62 acres) to theft of the israeli military and the unjust and invalid laws of the zionist occupation, for the benefit of the colony “Betar Illit”. They refuse, obviously, to sell the rest of their land to the thieving ultra-extremist Haredi jews.
According to my sources, the ultra-extremist Haredi jews decided to celebrate the end of the year 2011 and the start of 2012 by taking revenge against the poor Palestinian worker Mr. Hamamrah and his family according to the traditions of their own religion. Hamamreh who received a work permit issued by the so-called “civil administration, a military branch of the IDF military colony in “Beit El”, district of Ramallah to work at the jewish squatter colony of “Betar Illit”. The colonists were provided by Beit El officers with name of the worker before he started his work as building constructor.
The director of the Palestinian ambulance and emergency charity, the Red Crescent in Bethlehem, Abdel-Halim Jaafreh, said that they received a call from the Israeli “civil administration” office DCL, stating that a Palestinian worker was injured in the settlement of “Betar Illit” and he was not in critical condition but “in the middle”. They informed them that the patient was the worker Khaled Hussein Hamamrah, age of 40.
Mr. Jaafreh said: “after we collected Mr. Hamamreh and we diagnosed his condition, we provided him with the first medical aid. Mr. Hamareh stated that he had been subjected to assault with a sharp object by a colonist who attacked him while working. His left ear was cut during the assault, he received another deep wound under his right eye, and his head was smashed. The victim was transferred to the hospital of Beit Jala in order to make pictures for his head (brain CT scan) for fear of a case of internal bleeding.
The Hamamreh family correctly suspects the involvement of the “civil administration” officers in the cowardly attack on their son. They suspect collusion of the officers who granted Hamamreh an entry permit for working at the settlement. The family suspects that the officers (most of them are themselves colonists and ultra-extremist Haredi jews) issued the permit in coordination with the criminals terrorist haredi jews in order to intimidate the Hamamreh family to leave their land in the interest of the “Betar Illit” expansion.
According to a member of the Hamamrah family who lives in Husan, the Palestinian farmers of Husan owned 9,000 dunums of agriculture land, 2,000 of which remains to the village, the rest of which has mostly been illicitly appropriated and is under the control and the influence of “Betar Illit” colony terrorists.
The jewish terrorists of “Betar Illit” receive the full support from the “civil administration”, the colonial branch of the IDF. Gen. Motti Almoz, (תא”ל מוטי אלמוז) current head of the “civil administration”, Lt. Col. Eyad Sirhan, (איאד סרחאן) commander of the coordination and at the “Civil Administration”, Lt. Col. Tzvika Cohen, (צביקה כהן) former extremist officer from the Givati unit of the IDF who previously worked at the “civil administration” in Hebron and is now the head of “infrastructure” (theft of Palestinian lands for the colony of “Beit Ell”) and other senior officers appeared several times at the colony of “Betar Illit” together with the top criminals, thieves and terrorists Rabbi Yehuda Gerlitz, Shimon Einstein, Avishai Miron, Raanan Imran and other criminals who administrate the colony and benefits of the theft of the Palestinian lands, the natural resources and springs of the area.

Gen. Almoz himself and all other officers working around him at the “civil administration” are perpetrators ethnic cleansing, accessories to genocide and crimes against humanity in the occupied West Bank, against the Palestinian people. War criminal Almoz planted some trees at the colony of “Betar Illit” in the West Bank after he received his position to lead these crimes against the Palestinian people at the head of the “civil administration” on 4 November 2010.
According to statements from the ultra-extremist Haredi jews in their Hebrew media after the first visit of Gen. Almoz and his criminal staff to the colony of “Betar Illit”, Almoz discussed the plans for ethnic cleansing and pillage of the area which the “civil administration” is supposed to implement against Palestinians living in Bethlehem and the surrounding area near the colony in the next four years.
Among the subjects which he had discussed with the thieving Haredi were the completion of “treatment application of jurisdiction” on the “blue line”, completion of the procedure for land survey, combination of the commercial space JURISDICTION of the city, the promotion, planning and permissions to expand the colony and infrastructure for “residential purposes” at the colony as well as delivering of industrial, transport, sewage and waste flows into the Palestinian agricultural land, regulation of the perimeter fence. The “security” focus is complete, save the land, increased enforcement against land invasions, throwing debris, and more issues.
The jewish colonists and the radical ultra-extremist Haredi are the real government of Israel and all Israeli authorities are employees de-facto work under the power of the extreme radical squatters in the West Bank. The so called “civil administration” was established in the occupied territories by the israeli military occupation in 1967 with the express purpose of changing the geography and the demography of Palestine, that is, to perpetrete ethnic cleansing and pillage.
In the legal field, this colonial office, the “civil administration”, would operate by imposing on the Arab population, among others, the obsolete and dictatorial laws of the Ottoman Empire and their military occupation, the dictatorial Jordanian laws, the British colonial laws, and by interpreting israeli laws in unfavorable ways whenever Palestinians were concerned. “Legality” and “law” concerns the “civil administration” only if and insofar as it is useful to further their purpose of existence, namely the wholesale plunder of all the Palestinian natural resources such as water, minerals, natural resources etc, and implementing wholesale ethnic cleansing and genocide of the Palestinians.
